Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
To confess means to say the same thing as another, i.e. to agree with. Therefore in order to be able to confess I must first believe. I must hear what is being said, agree with it and then speak it.
What has the LORD said about me? The LORD has said that a sparrow doesn’t fall to the ground without the Father and He said that the very hairs of my head are numbered and that I am of more value to Him than many sparrows. I have to believe that and confess it before men if the Lord is going to confess me before the Father.
I am of value to the LORD and He knows all of the details of my life. He, in fact, has numbered the hairs of my head. I am so valuable to the LORD that He wants to keep up with every hair of my head. Every hair of my head means even those that I have now and those that I’ve had in days gone by and lost. The LORD knows when and where they came out.
Now if the LORD knows those kind of details about my life I must be of immense value to Him. I need to hear that, believe it and confess it before men. My value is not determined by what people think about me and their judgments but my value is determined by what the LORD knows about me and He knows even the number of hairs on my head.
We are of immense value. The issue comes in believing that. With the abuse and greedy self-centeredness in today’s world it is easy to feel like you are not worth anything and you’re nothing but a pain in the neck to everyone around you. That’s not what the LORD said and we need to begin repeating what He said. I am of immense value to the creator of all heaven and earth.
Instead of allowing the abuse and mistreatment of life to push you down and depress you, starting confessing, I am of value, the LORD said so. This causes the Lord to start confessing me before the Father. Father you see what they are going through and the value they hold for me. Father you fall with every sparrow that goes to the ground so please be with them today.
You are of value, start confessing it.
